Chapter 5: Tasking and Real-Time

This chapter describes various improvements in the tasking and real-time areas for Ada 2012.
The most important is perhaps the recognition of the need to provide control over task allocation on multiprocessor architectures.
There are also various improvements to the scheduling mechanisms and control of budgets with regard to interrupts.
An interesting addition to the core language is the ability to specify restrictions on how a procedure of a synchronized interface is to be implemented.
